Default SCGC Custom OM/PW NOW $3500 **SOLD**

I'm back from the Woodstock show with my eye on a build I saw there and in gotta-sell-one-to-get-one mode. I listed this SCGC about a year ago, got a bunch of offers I couldn't accept and eventually pulled it back. I'm re-listing for a straight sale.

This is a 2013 model I took in trade with virtually no playing time on it. None. Even the tuners were tight and I subsequently swapped out the nickel Gotohs for smoother gold w/ ebony buttons. Originals are in case pocket. It's set up perfectly, perfect neck angle, and plays effortlessly. Low E at 12th is <3/32. Tight grained Adi top w/ some nice silking, natural gloss finish over dark chocolate EIR. The smell is still in there. Adi braces, hide glue, a lot of stuff here, all tastefully vintage without the glitz. Tone is LIVELY, orchestral, articulate, with lots of overtone and sustain. Guitar has areas of top finish checking, I'm told from a shipping issue to/from original owner. I've tried to capture this in pix below and price accounts for this. None of the checks catch thumbnail and guitar is otherwise pristine.

2013 OM/PW Custom
Top: Adirondack
B/s: Indian Rosewood
Soft cutaway
Scale: 14-fret, 25.375
Bracing/Voicing: Advanced X, scalloped
Adi braces
Deep body - 4 1/2" at tail
Ab rosette and top
All hide glue
45-style fingerboard markers
PLEKed
1 3/4 nut
2 1/4 spacing
Neck shape - I'd call it a D with a soft spine that gives it a slightly V feel
Case - original Ameritage

$3500 (11/14)

Tasteful -45 inlays on unbound board



My crappy cell phone can't capture the rich color of the adi against semi sweet dark chocolate

Thank dford!

Re: the top checking as I've gotten a number of questions - There are 12 in all, 10 clustered on treble & bass sides of lower bout and 1 emanating from each bridge wing. Looking straight at top, only the 2 from the bridge are visible, barely. As noted up top, there are no finish eruptions and they're not detectable to fingernail. I bought the guitar with full knowledge of this as checking is pretty much a non-issue for me and I was getting a killer guitar at a really nice price. So, if you want an 8K SC one-off at less than half its cost, there's this....
